Strike a Chord

Daily Prompt – Do you play an instrument? Is there a musical instrument whose sound you find particularly pleasing? Tell us a story about your experience or relationship with an instrument of your choice.


Strike a chord
All the instruments I explored
The bandura when I was young
It had just been newly strung
And then I was a member of our band
Even though I knew it wasn’t grand
Played that stringed instrument well
I felt myself with pride such swell
When son started learning the piano
Good idea, we can probably have a show
I thought I’d have some lessons, too
But then I took more than I can chew
Somehow his interest wane and so did I
That was that and we have to say goodbye
To be honest, I was never good and so be it
Better listen than play for everyone’s benefit
